New Music: Lil Wayne “Sorry 4 The Wait” Mixtape

Earlier this week, we listened to Wayne’s Marvin’s Room remix and now this past Wednesday he’s dropped his new mixtape Sorry 4 The Wait. If you haven’t already copped it already we’ve got it for you here. Lil Wayne raps over popular song beats such as My Last, Racks, Sure Thing and even Adele’s Rolling In The Deep. The famous sound of the flicking of a lighter can be heard on the mixtape along with features of rappers Gudda Gudda and Lil B. The mixtape is a gift for fans due to album pushbacks and he makes that clear through his saying of “sorry for the wait” all through the mixtape. What’s your opinion on the new mixtape? Weezy fans are you happy he finally gave you something to listen to while he continues to work on Tha Carter IV? Will you be copping Tha Carter IV August 29th?

While there are tons of bloggers out here on the net, I wanted to take this time out of the day to recognize two bloggers who I respect: Angel Laws of Concrete Loop and Fred Mwangaguhunga of Mediatakeout.  Both of them are on opposite ends of the blogosphere but there are unique things about them that make them standout.

 

First off, I want to congratulate Angel on her new book! I went in Barnes & Nobles and spotted her book. I copped 5 copies; one for myself and the other four for close friends of mine who are aspiring bloggers. I love that Angel put out a book to share her journey of blogging and how others can do it too. I’m glad that she recognizes that there’s enough room for all us here on the net. Her book is just a reflection of the positive energy that she puts out into the world. If you haven’t already got your copy of “Angel’s Law Of Blogging” be sure to do so. Congratulations again Angel!

Secondly, I wanted to give my homie and mentor Fred Mwangaguhunga a shout out. He had triplets and working on some big things. Just so yall know Fred is the guy behind the worlds biggest African American blog Mediatakeout.com. His website gets millions of unique views everyday. His website is mainly known for his extreme and bizarre stories about celebrities and other random outlandish ish. Last month he sat down to give Shamika Sanders of the Urban Daily an interview (WHICH IS SUPER RARE!). Check out the video interview here: READ MORE

Earlier this week we learned about theft accusations fired from Live Nation against Matthew Knowles stating that he had stolen money from his daughter Beyonce. Well now Matthew Knowles is standing up and speaking out. Due to all of theft allegations that have come out, Matthew had confirmed that he and Beyonce are not speaking.  Matthew is sticking to his guns saying that he DID NOT steal any of Beyonce’s money and released this statement to the Associated Press:

“We absolutely have not taken any money from Beyonce, and all dollars will be accounted for. In no way have we stole money. Again, this is about the people who have made these claims — they have to come into the light.”

He has even went so far as to file papers in Texas that state that some of Bey’s people (like Columbia Records, Live Nation, and Roc Nation) have made negative comments about him. Matthew is avid that Live Nation just wants to take over Beyonce’s career. Therefore, to get him out of the door, he’s convinced that’s why they had Beyonce hire a law firm to audit her finances. This story is getting crazier and crazier. It’s sad that money is driving a wedge between Beyonce and her father. Guess it just goes to show you that money is truly the root of all evil. What are your thoughts on Matthew and Beyonce not speaking? Do you think he stole the money if he’s filing papers against Beyonce’s camp?

Word Up: Da Brat Tat Tat

Recently released from jail after doing a 2 1/2 years stint for aggravated assault at an ATL nightclub, Da Brat has hit the ground running. In a recent interview with CNN, Da Brat discussed her autobiography, how the entertainment industry has changed and the possibility of landing a reality show. When discussing the reality show, she says, “I’m working on getting one now. The sad thing about it is most of these networks want the fighting, they want the drunkenness, they want the confrontational and that’s not me anymore. I’ve outgrown that and I don’t want that to be the main focus. Been there, done that and been through hell because of that. I want to show people who I am, introduce them to my family, where I’ve come from, how I’m helping people with my charity work. I know it sounds boring, but that comes with a lot… of bumps in the road. So I’m currently shopping for a deal now.” She has also released a mixtape, “Life After Death,” which can be downloaded from Global14.com.

Looks like Da Brat is trying to get her grown woman on, think she can pull it off?

Jill Scott On Being Dickmatized

Nope, I didn’t mean to say mesmerized but indeed dickmatized. Jill Scott confessed to Jamie Foster Brown from Sister 2 Sister that she was once dickmatized.

What exactly is “dickmatized”?
“Where you get caught up in the whole sexuality of your relationship but it’s not going anywhere… Just somebody giving you the goods but not necessarily giving you the rest—or not expecting the rest from them. What I’ve discovered is, although it may be a lot of fun, it is also a waste of time and you might be blocking your blessing—blocking somebody who wants to be more to you than just a great time in your life.

How did you become un-dickmatized?
“Just realizing what I have to offer. I’m so much more than my flesh!” .
